What a neat concept: what would you miss from Earth if you were suddenly zapped to Mars? Thank you, Robin, for making us reflect on the good things in life that we all too often take for granted.
It will be of little surprise to everyone to find similarities between the Urban Panther's list and my own. Isn't that why we are soulmates after all?
Number one on my list is definitely water. To paddle a canoe or kayak on a dead calm body of water is such a zen like experience. But then again, the sound of surf breaking on the shore, or the thunderous sound of a waterfall. Heck, I even have an MP3 file of water sounds that I sometimes loop all night for a good sleep.
The sweet smell of grass. Lying on my back on a hot summer day, all senses tuned in. I can smell the grass, hear the chirping of birds, and the laughter of kids. HAPPINESS!
I know I'll live to regret this one, but snow ! I would miss snow! I just love to be inside and watch a nice big snow storm. I like building things out of snow and zooming down the hills on my snowboard. To cross country ski in the forest is also a very relaxing activity.
Rain and thunderstorms. In fact, any of Mother Nature's sound and lights shows. To lie on your back on a cool night to watch Northern lights is so amazing.
I assume there's beer, wine and yummy animals on Mars right?
What I wouldn't miss? Harley friggin' Davidsons with their noisy exhausts. Inconsiderate people who think they are alone on this Earth. My Yahoo neighbours and their loud antics.
Although a trip to Mars sounds very tempting, I really think I'd like to come back eventually. I like it too much down here and still have a lot of things to do.
How about you? Are there any similarities between your list and your partner's? Anything you wouldn't miss?
